If you’re from the Buckeye state and planning on making a visit to our nation’s capital, you can rest assured that you’d feel right at home. A big piece of Ohio lies right in Washington D.C. It’s full of Buckeye state mementos from the Wright flyer and astronaut John Glenn’s space capsule to Buckeye trees and Ohio meteorites. The National Air and Space Museum displays the plane Orville and Wilbur Wright used for the first flight back in December of 1903. While there, tourists can also touch Friendship Seven, the space capsule Ohioan John Glenn used for the first orbit around the earth by an American. Buckeye state tourists can also check out the Natural History Museum for two meteorites that landed in Ohio.
